Help send a West-coast writer (and all-around nice person) to a conference in Toronto. Represent!
 
I need your help! I have been invited to go to a conference in Toronto to present some of my fiction. Only I need to do a fundraiser to pay for the plane tickets and the hotel there. There is only 7 days left and if I cannot raise enough money I won't be able to go and will need to cancel with the conference. PLEASE HELP!

I hear that a lot. Most projects of this size have their bumps, so I've no idea if it's just the normal SNAFU situation or what. If you look just in front of the existing bridge, you can see that they have constructed some concrete pylons for the new bridge already. Wish I'd gotten a better shot of that.

A fine photo of my #PAXPrime2014 panel: "You're SO mature! Is storytelling in games coming of age?" I don't know the photographer, but it's from this blog http://gameintrospection.com/ and I am all for more introspection related to games.

As a professional game dev I find this article to be disturbing. Who can afford to work for free? I mean, I work with friends on projects on the side for rev share, but not full-time at 40+ hours a week. http://www.polygon.com/2014/9/11/6132227/game-development-startup-salaries
Nine Dots is a small indie start-up. The studio was founded three years ago, and we're currently a team of seven full-time developers.

Kate Edwards, IGDA's Executive Director, participated in a segment on the CBC Radio show "The Current" about women in the game industry. The show was broadcast this morning. The recording can be found here: http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2014/09/10/half-of-all-video-game-players-are-women-yet-only-ten-per-cent-of-all-designers-are-women-time-to-br/
Women over 18 now represent more gamers than boys under 18 years of age. But in the futuristic game design

Check it out this article that I wrote to discover my darkest community building secrets!
Community is vital. The chance to physically mingle with others and share your experiences is key to staying motivated and staying sane. Unfortunately, there may not be an existing game development group in your area, so in this article I'll give you some pointers on starting your own local game developer community. | Difficulty: Beginner; Length: Medium; Tags: Business, Community, Networking
